Comment:
Strong machine which finishes drive way quick,even through plow throwed-up snow and wet snow. Single chute control can be a little hard to operate on the fly but is easy when at a stop at end of row. It is a strong machine so turning is quick and you may need to down shift if you do not want to spin around.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Cleared a 118' x 16' driveway at 18 snow in less than an hour! Forward, reverse, and separate wheel braking work well. Throws snow a good distance. Does take a bit of time to become familiar with all the controls. Once this is done, the three stage blower works well, very well.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
This blower starts right up and will throw the snow as fast as you care to walk. I have a long asphalt drive on a hill with a few tree root lumps in it. Previous machines had problems with the bumps or dragged me down the incline. Between the weight and the multiple speeds (easily engaged) I can go smoothly up and down the drive at my own pace. Apron clearing is smooth in low gear no matter how compacted the plow remains are.
